3 reasons to choose Turo/Ken: 1) WAY less time to checkout than an airport rental / off site rental. 2) Hard to find exotic car! 3) Worked within our trip parameters (distance) to make it happen!
Omar - August 9, 2018
This was my first rental with Turo, and the experience was fantastic. Kent had great communication, and the professionalism of the Turo Valet employees was better than most standard rental companies. Kent was flexible with pickup and drop off time, and free airport pickup was appreciated. 5 stars!

Tony was an outstanding host. He was accommodating to flight delays and changes. The car was in outstanding condition and easy to pickup at the SFO hourly parking lot. Return was just as seamless. Would definitely repeat!

When an issue occurred which neither Lucian nor I could have anticipated, his helpfulness, trust and flexibility meant it was resolved with minimal impact. The car is of course fun, practical and quick. Ten years ago it was a pipe dream to rent this sort of vehicle (or anything manual) when travelling in the US, but gone are the days of hearing "Please hold on. Please set luggage cart brake to on." while trundling toward the SFO rental facility dreading what they'll have in the carpark.

Jeff made my first Turo experience awesome. I rent cars frequently from big rental companies and this experience was far superior. The car was in great shape and it was a much faster (and cheaper) way to to rent than waiting in lines at the airport rental counters. I’m a car guy so it’s nice know what your going to get.

The Cayman S was pretty much how I imagined it; quick, balanced, aggressive, and impossible to keep from smiling while you’re behind the wheel. Brandon was easy to work with, and the Turo valet at SF airport was as convenient as the big airport rental companies. I’d rent this car again in a heartbeat.

We had an awesome trip with this great looking and even better driving car (we nicknamed him Bruce). The owner communicated very well throughout the whole process and pickup/dropoff at SFO Turo valet made for a stress free trip. The car was spotless and so much fun to drive. We would definitely rent Bruce again!

Alex

Easy as it sounds:) A real treat to drive. Car was ready and full of gas on time and on location early. A far better rental option, with no long wait at the rental counter. Car was a real joy to drive on the winding roads of Highway 1. We had a few routine questions and Julien responded within 30 minutes every time; above and beyond!

Ke’s car made my trip! It was just as clean (I think cleaner) than a rental car from a company, the price was much more reasonable, his car was in beautiful condition, pickup and returns couldn’t have been more of a breeze! Thank you Ke for fulfilling my dream of driving down the one in a small fun convertible!

Tatiana’s car was perfect for the two of us. It was very economical, comfortable and is perfect for a couple. Tatiana delivered the car right to where we were at the airport and dropped us off for our departing flight. So convenient! Instead of “slepping” bags on a rental car bus and the delays that one encounters filling out all the paper work involved in the renting process, we were on our way from the airport in no time. Would highly recommend renting from Tatiana.

Volkswagen GTI 2008
Great first-time experience with Turo, and Populous did not disappoint. Communication was easy and the GTI was fun to drive, if a little noisy. (It is a sport vehicle with 125k miles on it, after all.) The car was an 'airport' rental and the Turo Valet Lot option worked out just fine. (Uber to the off-site lot, pick up the car, return it to the lot, and get a free ride back to the airport.) I will definitely use Turo again, and wouldn't hesitate to use Populous again, should my travels bring back to the San Francisco area.

Josh was excellent on communication and was right on time to drop off the vehicle. It was clean and literally in brand new condition. He was super flexible when changing locations to the SFO airport. I would definitely recommend his vehicle. Thank you!

Amazing car! We picked it up at the turo valet near SFO airport and drove south until Big Sur. Very comfortable convertible and ideal to make your road trips funner. We took 2 carry ons and one big bag and everything fit well. Justin responded all our questions very kindly and in time. Very recommended!

Porsche 911 2013
First time using Turo. I'll absolutely use it again in the future. Was great to get behind the wheel of a 911 for an extended period. The car has been well maintained and had good (pirelli p-zero) tyres all round. Just such a great way to get into some fun cars and certainly beats what you get at a normal rental company! Picking up and returning was super easy and straightforward.

Perfect rental with Dan in his fantastic Tesla. The ideal car to rent when traveling throughout the Bay Area. Simple pick up and drop off (so much better than rental companies at SFO). Great communication. Will rent again next time I’m in SF.

Great car, easy pickup very close to SFO, easier than the shuttle to rental car center. Lance communicated will abd was very accommodating when I requested ahead of time to extend the rental by 2 hours. This was my first time renting from Turo, and thanks to Lance, it won't be the last.

I used Turo for the first time to borrow John's sweet Tesla and couldn't have been more impressed. The ease of pickup and drop off, the staff at Turo and excellent communication throughout made it a great trip. And the Autopilot feature made driving from SFO to Monterey and beyond a breeze. Thanks for a wonderful experience. Turo customer for life!

Michael was great- very flexible with the pick up & return (SFO pick up, SJC return), very quick to respond, and adjusted the return time. And the mustang was a ton of fun to drive and perfect for cruising around California! Will definitely book again next time I’m back in the area.

We had a brilliant time with Ryan’s Model 3. Firstly, Ryan was brilliant to deal with. Understanding and helpful and always onhand if we had any questions. Then the car itself was beautiful. Autopilot was brilliant fun, and the performance was amazing. I’ll find it difficult to go back to anything else now! We picked the car up from the Turo lot at SFO and that was seamless. Brilliant experience.

Absolutely no complaints about the car or check in, would certainly rent again! Only note: leave some extra time with your check in time only because Uber pick ups at SFO can get pretty slow.

Alfa Romeo 4C 2016
I booked Ken's Alfa Romeo 4C for a quick day trip down the coast, and I couldn't think of a more thrilling car for the jaunt. Ken was a pleasure to interact with, and the car was easy to pick up and drop off at the SFO Turo lot. The car itself is all about the driving experience, and delivers a visceral experience of sound, confidence and attention from onlookers that is unlike any other car I've driven. Would highly recommend renting from Ken, and especially this fine road car.

Excellent service from a communicable and friendly host. Josh was accommodating and provided flexible service as my flight into SFO kept on getting delayed. He acted quickly and even overly apologetic to all my change of plans! I will definitely use Josh's services again and without hesitation recommend his Accord out. Car matched description and satisfied all my needs for my trip.

Alan's car was fantastic and absolutely completed our trip to Sonoma. Nothing beats riding over the Golden Gate bridge and cruising through the hills of wine country in a Porsche with the top down! Alan was quick to respond before and during the reservation. Pick up and return was also easy using Turo's convenient valet location near SFO.

Great experience with Bruce and Turo. Bruce’s Mini convertible was super fun to drive around California with the top down, good on gas, and easy to go thru tolls with fast pass. Turo valet was also very convenient with pick up and drop of at SFO paid by them and the process at their office was quick and easy. Overall great experience.

The turo valet at SFO was incredibly accommodating, even staying a bit late due to a delayed flight. The car was everything I could have dreamed of and more, it has autopilot and is pretty speedy. The car was clean and stylish. Charging via supercharger was super easy. Ryan was awesome to deal with, this car is definitely something that I would love to rent again when I’m in the area!

Kevin and his M-Powered BMW 328i were fantastic and a big part of our family's successful vacation. Super clean, exceptionally maintained, and a blast to drive. The Turo GO keyless app feature worked perfectly every time. And the 24/7 parking space is less than 5 minutes from SFO, better than the Turo valet lot I will definitely rent from Kevin again.

For those looking for an amazing EV rental in the Bay Area, look no further than Kaushik’s Model 3! This was amongst the best Turo experiences I’ve had. Kaushik was at the airport to pick me up from the arrivals area on time to the dot. So for those looking for a rental experience that works with a very busy business schedule, this is perfect. The car was in perfect condition, and in fact it always amazes me when owners such as Kaushik keep a vehicle cleaner than a major rental car company. Kaushik was available for any questions I had at anytime and his responses were very immediate. On arranging the return, he was also very flexible and put the renter’s convenience before his. I don’t even think I have to mention cool factor... since what’s cooler than a long range feature packed (AP included!) Model 3 in the Bay Area. The vehicle’s size is perfect for any trip and with the abundance of charging options, it really is the perfect rental car! Thanks Kaushik for any awesome experience and look forward to renting from you again!

The Prius was great, and Dan was always incredibly helpful, friendly, and professional. It was especially great to get picked up and dropped off at SFO (Dan even tracked my flight to make sure he’d be on time) - by far my most convenient car rental experience (via Turo or a traditional rental place).
Brittany C. - September 9, 2018
